EXCLUSIVE WEBINAR OPPORTUNITY FOR MEMBERS OF THE SWISS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.
24th Annual Nordic Financial Services Virtual Conference 2021
Members of the Swiss Chamber of Commerce are invited to take part in the annual UBS Nordic Financial Services Conference – this year taking place virtually on 2 September 2021.
With the vaccine roll-out underway in Europe the macro outlook is significantly improved compared to a year ago. This has manifested itself, among other things, in a sharp increase in interest in European banks. On a relative basis, the macro developments in the Nordic region has been better than elsewhere in Europe, something that was also manifested in the share price performance of the companies. Nordic financials are coming stronger out of the pandemic, in our view, with limited asset impairment and strengthened capital positions. We expect much of the debate this year to be around how that capital can be used (capital return vs. growth) as well as any repercussions of the pandemic.
In September, UBS will be gathering representatives from the top Nordic financial companies, as well as policymakers and look forward to hosting a full program of company presentations and stimulating panels at our 24th Annual Nordic Financials Conference.
